Something to Smile About

We’re in a busy spell here and the weather has been about as crazy as our schedule. We had Spring-like temperatures in February but March brought us snow squalls. Dressing in layers and checking the forecast often has been our best means to manage the fluctuations. And we’re still smiling!

This week I managed some kitchen time despite everything else. I think keeping things under control at home helps me maintain my sanity. I made more sourdough bread, brownies (that disappeared before I could get a proper picture), yogurt, and spreadable yogurt cheese.

I also used up the last of my goat’s milk soap base to make more vanilla latte soap. I do love the way it smells!

And I found more glycerine soap base that I used to make an oversized bar of toy soap with three glow-in-the-dark snakes. I think somebody is going to think it is very cool.

By the way, I finished reading A Cabin Full of Food by Marie Beausoleil. It was a lot of information to absorb but there are several things I want to try. I also started reading Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography.

What are you smiling about this week?

I moderate comments manually but will get them posted as quickly as possible. Please keep your comments kind and if you must disagree please do so without being disagreeable. Rude or inappropriate comments will obviously not be published.
